said the window is closing is that for israel and president obama mentioned with the very important points. for israel, the window is closing because the technological superiority in terms of weapons israel has cannot be kept on endlessly. technology is becoming so threatening to israel that even if they win every war in the future, the damage that can be done to israel would be so great that winning would almost be like losing. and for the palestinians, their problem is that the israelis are settling more than as less land that is available for a future palestinian state. so time is running out for both sides to reach a peaceful two-state solution. and in the absence of a two-state solution, the next alternative would be what they call a one-state solution. one state between the jordan river and the mediterranean. that would be a recipe for disaster and there's no way that a peace process could take care of that kind of scenario. so the urgency for a two-state solution was expressed over the last few days. can i mention one development today. when obama and netanyahu that their fin

israel and turkey. tell us about president obama's role in making that happen. >> warner: judy, the white house, the administration has been working for over two years to try to heel this rift, but it became important as the syria conflict got more serious in the neighborhood, because in the absence of going in in thely, the president is trying to all the neighbors as we know in the region to assist with refÑg es, to assist with figuring out where the chemical weapons are, to try to figure out which islamist forces might be gaining ground among the rebel forces. it's very complicated. and to have two of america's three staunchest, best, sort of security and intelligence allies in the region not speaking has been a huge, huge problem. so, the president-- john kerry, when he went to archg raon his maten trip as secretary of state, talkedded to erdjuan, and the president when he got here at his very first meeting with netanyahied with brought it up, and has been working it we're told each time they met. so it was set up that they went to the airport. they had a trailer set up, and netanyahi
